Vinery LTD presents the Paulick Derby Index: East, West or in Between?

Last year, the winning path to the Kentucky Derby was a short drive down I-71 from Florence, Ky., to Louisville.  Animal Kingdom’s victory in the Vinery Racing Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park propelled him to Churchill Downs glory on the first Saturday in May.  If recent history is any indication, this year’s winner may come […]
